"Mom, I just love your [design] style.
It is so light, like a lamb--it is
soft and warm."
You can imagine my surprise and delight at my 7 year old's ability to articulate something that means a lot to me. I don't want to impress on my children the importance of superficiality and I don't believe that having a nice home is all about what a space LOOKS like, but how it FEELS.
I am so proud that he obviously gets that. I hope my children can think back on their childhood and remember how it felt. I want them to have a beautiful impression of a "soft and warm" home. He is amazing, my little man.
